Now that summer is really here, we have a little more time to relax and enjoy our surroundings. As always, we’re looking for new things to try. Last year, a friend told me about a bike path in Brattleboro that was relatively flat and good for young riders. We decided to give it a try a couple weeks ago. The entrance to the path is located just behind one of our favorite Brattleboro spots, The Marina Restaurant.
It’s really a nice trail. There are a two difficult hills, one up and one down, but most of the trail is a nice and flat, following the West River. There are lots of different terrains – meadow, woods, rocky cliffs.
The trail also goes by the huge construction project on Interstate 91 – they are replacing the bridge over the West River. It’s taking forever for them to do it, but it’s really cool to see it from below.
Here are Jake and Lydia biking through one of the most picturesque portions of the trail. Isn’t Vermont beautiful?

We followed up our ride with lunch at The Marina and frozen yogurt downtown… a lovely family day!
